Should Ireland, who still have to play France this Sunday, pull off a win then, barring a pair of freakishly high-scoring, bonus-point wins for Joe Schmidt's team, victory for England in their 1700 kick-off would see the Six Nations trophy being handed to Owen Farrell at Twickenham.

"Every game against Scotland has extra on it", said Jones after his side scored eight tries in a 57-14 rout of Italy as a morale-lifting response to the loss in Wales a fortnight ago.

Previous year some players were involved in a shoving match in the tunnel as they returned to the changing rooms before the match, while Jones was jostled and abused on the train by Scottish football fans as he travelled back from Edinburgh.

Jones promised to "bring a few of my mates back from La Perouse", referring to the tough suburb of Sydney he grew up in. "We know how important Saturday is so we'll try to put everything on to the field".

"We used the whole 23 today", Jones said after the win.

"I just remember everything that was being said". [Twickenham] is nice. It's all leather patches on your sleeves and brogue shoes. I've got to be careful though because you could easily get a knock-on. We have work to do to make sure we finish the game with our trousers up.

SDF attack Islamic State group's Syria enclave Baghuz
SDF forces were holding about 4,000 suspected Islamic State fighters from Iraq and Syria and more than 1,000 foreign fighters, the official said.

The Bath player may have not scored a try, but he was an integral part of England's attack, making 108m, five clean breaks through the Italian defensive line and two offloads - more than anyone else in those categories.

Jones has already began motivating his side for that clash by reminding his players that the Scottish "pulled our trousers down" with a win at Murrayfield in last year's Six Nations.

Maro Itoje may also be fit to return in England's second row.

Head coach Gregor Townsend has been robbed of John Barclay, WP Nel, Hamish Watson, Ryan Wilson, Finn Russell, Huw Jones and Stuart Hogg during the Six Nations and now heads to Twickenham were the Scots have not won for 36 years. Lomu nearly won a World Cup for New Zealand, changed the way the game's played.

"Lomu nearly won a World Cup for New Zealand, and he changed the way the game's played", Jones said after Cokanasiga marked his fourth cap by flinging a lavish one-handed offload in the opening play, and made a second-half try for substitute scrum-half Dan Robson. We are not engaging in that sort of rubbish conversation. "As long as I am enjoying the way I play it, then I'm happy". In 2017 he couldn't complete a training session but he's worked really hard.
